Megyn Kelly Decries Being ‘Cancelled’ by NBCUniversal for Blackface Comments
Megyn Kelly spoke out on Twitter Wednesday about her infamous ousting from NBC News, questioning why NBCUniversal “cancelled” her but Robert Downey Jr. was not similarly “cancelled” for wearing blackface in the film “Tropic Thunder.” That movie was filmed partially at Universal Studios and distributed in some foreign territories by Universal Pictures International (Paramount released the film in the U.S.).

Sharing a Page Six article called “Why Robert Downey Jr. Doesn’t regret wearing blackface in ‘Tropic Thunder,'” she wrote, “R. Downey Jr: wears blackface for Universal w/o regret bc it ‘sparked a necessary convo.’ Univer.: yay Robert! Me: Never worn blackface but had one of those ‘necessary convos’ re how standard seems to have changed over time.NBC-Univer: F.U.! Cancelled!”
